I have the pics and will try to get them on in the morning The one with the lead type selector is a Helix and I have the Alvin lead holder pic as well
Here is a pic of the Helix with the lead type indicator (Image removed from quote.)Here is the Alvin and I didn't realize that this one was made in Italy Has this cool red top and all (Image removed from quote.)The Helix has a sharpener in the cap but I forget now if the Alvin has one in the red cap and of course it is at home and will be several hours before I can check it now
I love the texture of that pencil so very cool

Strictly home or office use only.I can see why. With me, it would be home only. Wouldn't wanna risk (someone) loosing it (for me).

The end of this no name 2mm I have has a brass clutch which is surprising as some of my others have a plastic clutch this so far has been a really nice pencil that has had no drawbacks that I can see
I've used a fair bit of mechanical pencils over the years. Most easily forgotten and or lost. Some have survived though:I like the Staedtlers and have a few in different sizes of those. I also bought a Pentel Graphgear 500 at some point, but the hexagonal shape is somehow just not my thing. By a mistake I got sent a Uni Shift some years ago. That one is nice, and especially to just drop in a pocket or similar as it protects its point when not in use. My current favorite is the Uni Kura Toga though. Not because of its constant rotating of the lead inside, but because of its slightly dampened or springy lead point. I guess a side effect of the rotating mechanism, but I find it weirdly pleasant. I can't seem to find it in thicker styles than 0.5 though. For the few times I use color I find useful to have the mechanical pencil itself in the same color, so I got a few Pilot Color Enos for that.
Also I have seen the Kura Toga in 0.7mm as well, so good luck in your search for one
